Do you have a strong track record of obtaining research funding with experience of delivering large multi-partner proposals, and have a proven ability to manage and motivate people?

Your new role will see you working in collaboration with senior research managers to develop strategies for maximising research income, assist with target setting and provide analysis and reports on performance.  You will manage the research pre-award bid service who work with academics to develop quality proposals and represent the University externally, lobbying for the University’s interests with funders and identifying supporting partnerships.

The Department of Research and Knowledge Exchange helps to:

This role is eligible for applications from job sharers.
